About Carolyn Walker

We are a retired couple living on the property. We enjoy providing our guests with everything they need, from a bottle of wine to plenty of towels for the hot tub. And we are nearby to help!

Carolyn Walker purchased this house in 2010

Why Carolyn Walker chose Wimberley

We are new to Texas, and we chose Wimberley for its peace and seclusion in a location near Austin and San Antonio. We didn't know these wooded rolling hills existed in Texas until we found Wimberley. As we meet local people, we find lots of talented and famous folks living quietly here in the woods.

What makes this house unique

We love the hills, trees, and wildlife of this property, even though it's only a mile to town. There is usually a gentle breeze coming up the hill to the deck. Deer come to eat the grass and drink from the trough outside the kitchen window. This is what relaxation is about!

Way too nice to call it a cabin or cottage!!!!

  • 5 of 5

In my determination, there could not possibly be a better place to stay in Wimberley, Texas. Every detail has been taken care of - just show up with clothes and food/drinks.

I loved waking up in the morning watching the deer and spending the evenings in the large hot tub.

We can't wait to go back!

Spectacular home surrounded by wildlife just minutes from Wimberley

  • 5 of 5

Bar-None Ranch was an ideal base for my group of four’s Hill Country retreat. The home is located just a few minutes by car from the Wimberley square but far enough out in the country that deer and foxes pass by your windows everyday. It was roughly 10 minutes to Blue Hole and Jacob’s Well.

The ranch is absolutely immaculate and no detail was overlooked with respect to its design and furnishings. Everything you need is there when you arrive. From Keurig coffee pods to laundry soap, it has all the essentials. And it’s a beautiful and very comfortable space. Lots of windows to watch the wildlife, natural sunlight, vaulted ceilings, super soft sheets, a walk-in shower, huge private porch, and Wifi. The top-of-the-line appliances in the kitchen were very handy. The crowning jewel was the magnificent Bullfrog hot tub on the big deck. It’s huge and it was such a treat to soak while gazing at the Hill Country stars.

Finally, a note about the owners: Carolyn and her husband are simply amazing! Friendly, quick to reply to emails, professional, and flexible, I would absolutely book their ranch again. Without doubt, it must be one of the best rental properties in the area. Highly, highly recommended. Thanks so much, Carolyn!

Absolutely wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated 50 years of friendship with my best friend! We were looking for a quiet place to have a sewing/quilting retreat and Bar None was perfect! Everything you could need for a week's stay was provided for you and the owners were so nice and accommodating. Highlight was watching all the deer each day and we were lucky enough to see not one but two gray fox!!

Very peaceful setting and very close to town. Even though it was June in Texas, there were wonderful breezes all day. Just a fabulous place! We are already planning next year's retreat!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very relaxing weekend at Bar-None Ranch. Downtown Wimberly is 5 minutes away and the best BBQ I've ever had is only a scenic 20 minute drive to The Salt Lick. We enjoyed the quietness under the stars in the hot tub and waking up in the morning to a red fox hanging out with the best fed cats I've ever seen along with six deer feeding outside. We live in Dallas and this definitely recharged out batteries. We wish it was longer but we will be back.

Bar-None Ranch is on a wooded hillside with a deck looking out into the trees. You can see deer, racoons, possums and foxes from your window. Look at the stars from the hot tub, wander the shops in Wimberley Square, or relax with wine on the deck after a day in Austin. Sign up for a Wimberley Zipline Adventure or shop at the huge outlet mall in San Marcos. The San Antonio Riverwalk is about one hour's drive. Check your email and then watch a movie on the big screen TV.
